How about 7/2/85...? The show made famous by the Revolution-Brokedown double encore where Jerry started singing the Brokedown chorus instead of the intro, and they... just...couldn't...get it... back on track...! So Jerry stops playing and says "Sounded good, didn't it?" before trying again.

An underrated show capping an amazing tour.

Yep, same exact thing... they started with the chorus "Gonna leave..." instead of "fare you well..." and there was just no saving it. The funny thing with the Telluride version is how Jerry keeps trying to salvage it, long after its obvious to everyone that something is VERY wrong, while in Pittsburgh 85 he recognizes early enough that there's no way to rescue it without starting over!
